Salzburg, Austria  see more

After taking a train from Innsbruck we arrived in Salzburg. Birthplace of great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The same city card what we got in Innsbruck we bought in Salzburg - Salzburg Card. It gave us free movement on any transport, free admission to most of the attraction including the cable car in Untersberg which is absolutely a must! More informations about Salzburg Card you can find here.

Hohensalzburn Fortress, entry to the castle and funicular is included in Salzburg Card.
